October Art Adventure
The Bonnet House
Friday, October 15th at 10:00 am for the guided house tour
The Bonnet House Museum & Gardens preserves the unique historic estate of artist Frederic and Evelyn Bartlett. Through enjoyable and enriching cultural experiences, the museum connects today’s community to the Bartletts’ architectural, artistic, and environmental legacy.
Frederic Clay Bartlett graduated from Munich’s prestigious Royal Academy in 1895 and returned to a prolific and prosperous career in the United States. He worked on mural projects in conjunction with American architects and his easel work can today be found in the best museums including the Carnegie Institute and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Examples of his easel art are displayed in the Bonnet House studio and Frederic’s murals and faux painting can be found throughout the Main House.
With little formal training but much encouragement from Frederic, Evelyn Fortune Lilly began painting in 1932. For six years, she painted prolifically, and her work was featured in well-received gallery exhibits in Boston, New York, and Indianapolis. Evelyn’s works are today displayed in Bonnet House’s Carl J. Weinhardt Gallery.
